nobody gets hurt

<– Back to Lyrics

So the spider crawls up to the fifth floor
Invited to witness a man and his mistress mixed up in conversation
Held together by the weather and warm bottle of champagne
Speaking in tongues their concerns lay with how things are slow to come undone

Nobody gets hurt
Nobody gets hurt
Nobody gets hurt, tonight

Up the stairs to where a boy stands up on the piano
He takes a piss on his own shadow, and then says, “I feel okay, now”
Suddenly the lights go low… okay now they go right back on
A week’s gone by everyone’s on their knees asking please for a longer vacation

Nobody gets hurt
Nobody gets hurt
Nobody gets hurt, tonight

So the spider goes to where the crowd has gathered, hands are clapping,
I fell out of my seat when the stars started barking, the dogs were talking
And even the building, the children they hadn’t looked the same, and now my love enjoys her pain
Shaking hands with everyone she meets but still she won’t say my name…
Nobody, nobody, nobody…

Down the stairs start again
…The spider goes, up the wall
Is there anything at all?
Finds a hole to hide his head
…Hurries again across the hall…
…Spins a web…it’s not just an empty bed
